    ^I bet. Apricot's belong in jelly, not in my beer.

    I tried it based on the reputation of DFH, and the "hop" part, but I should have known. Fruity beers are generally suck, although their Raisin D'etre is not bad. But raisin is a flavor that just seems like it could be ok in a beer.

    DFH is a good company, but to me they seem a bit overrated.

    Stone.

    Now there's a killer brewery.

    ^Nice avatar, speaking of which. The Bastard is a favorite of mine.

    Apricot is a pleasant flavor in tripels and strong ales. Raisin is common in doppelbocks and strong dark ales. I can't think of any fruit that I couldn't see working in beer. Tomato is not a fruit.

    We don't get Stone in IL. Sucks.

    Arrogant Bastard is strong, bitter, hoppy and good! Not as purely hoppy as some IPAs, but just as bitter. 7.2% abv.

    Some of my other favorites from Stone brewery are:

    Old Guadian barlywine style ale
    IPA
    Ruination double IPA
    Double Bastard

    To further intensify the repulsion I should add that it is from a room temperature can.

    It's my favorite dirt cheap beer at the moment. I have no doubt it repulses some regulars of this thread however.

    :lol:I have money for quality beer now. Back then I'd throw in for beer and never knew what my buddy's brother would bring me back.

    I have money for quality beer, but I'd rather spend it on music

    Seriously, while you fuckers are spending 9 dollars on a huge bottle of Arrogant Bastard, I'm unloading that money on some fucking quality music.

    I'm going to go grab myself another Natural Light

    The Bastard is only from $3-$4 for a bomber (22oz).

    For me, my goal is not to get drunk, so I typically only have one bomber or from 1-4 (usually 2) stronger (~6%-10% abv) beers at a time. Since I don't drink large quantities and I really like the more expensive beer, it works out fine. Plus I am old and have a good job.
